DAVID PINSKY & PHIL NEWTON

David Pinsky & Phil Newton have been a major part of the Southern Oregon blues scene for over thirty years. Six years ago they joined forces as a front porch blues duo. Longtime friends, they began playing local venues and concerts then branching out and twice playing on Beale Street in Memphis at the International Blues Challenge. Their two albums have received acclaim and regional and national airplay. 

David's propulsive guitar, welded to Phil's harmonica chops, provide a steady groove reminiscent of the ‘60s Chicago style duets. Both David and Phil bring decades of vocal experience, concentrating on their original compositions while keeping to traditional blues roots.

David and Phil are committed to Blues education and teaching blues to local kids as well as ‘keeping the blues alive’ in the traditions of the great Delta blues masters.
